Fabrika-Kuhnya (Kitchen Factory)

Aleksandr Chuprakov/Welcome2018.com

This popular self-serve restaurant replaced the no less popular Soviet establishment Uralskie Pelmeni on the ground floor of a Soviet constructivism landmark. Kitchen Factory still serves pelmeni, which the place inherited: with mushrooms and potatoes, with moose meat, chicken, and a few other fillings. Vareniki with hackberries are a more recent addition. Other dishes on offer include delicious jellied meat, homemade chops, meat “hedgehogs,” and chicken pilaf. For a low-priced place with trays that expects you to clean away your own dishes, Kitchen Factory is unique in that it serves real home-cooked food. The lines here on weekdays are the evidence. Kitchen Factory has delivery service. You can order on their website.
